National Milk Day...Drink Up!!!

It is National Milk Day...which, I think, is everyday in this house. We (by "we" I mean my husband, our almost 4 year old and 1 year old) can go through 4 gallons in a week an a half...easy!
I am not a HUGE milk drinker...gasp! Before you even have a second to wonder why...let me assure you I MORE than make up for it in my half and half consumption in my coffee...and CHEESE! I could (and do) make a meal off of cheese and crackers with wine,, lots of Friday nights. (Hmmm...dinner for the Mr. and I is done!)
But, it's Friday...and NOTHING goes better with an ice, cold glass of REAL CA milk than cookies. These are THE BEST Oatmeal Cookies you will ever have. They are my "claim to fame" if you will. Well, they are my mom's claim to fame...and this is her recipe and it never fails!!! These are always a hit. I think it is the sea salt... Momma's Oatmeal Cookies...
3/4 of a cup of butter...REAL butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of granulatd sugar
1 lonely little egg
1 tsp of GOOD vanilla
Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg and vanilla...
Add 3 cups of oatmeal...slowly...mix...but don't overdo it
1 cup of flour
1 tsp of sea salt
1/2 tsp of baking soda
We added raisins today...about 2 cups. Chocolate chips are our next fave!
Scoop into dough balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet... bake at 350 degrees for 10 12 minutes.
The house smells SO GOOD!!!!!
